Everything You've Ever Needed To Know About Pisces Zodiac Signs
If your birthday falls between approximately February 19 and March 20, then congrats: That means your zodiac sign is Pisces (but you probably already knew that!). These sensitive souls love to get lost in their feelings and fantasies — and we can channel this dreamy energy anytime we need to tap into the emotional realm.
Whether you're a Pisces, your crush or partner is a Pisces, or you just want to learn more about the 12 signs of the zodiac, here's the lowdown on everything you need to know about Pisces zodiac traits — and what it means if Pisces is a major influence in your astrological birth chart.
Pisces: The Zodiac's Emotional Dreamer
Pisces is represented by the symbol of the fish, which illustrates their free-flowing nature. Pisces' ruling planet is illusive and spiritual Neptune, which points to the way that this sign can easily float away from reality and transcend into a mystical way of thinking. As one of the mutable zodiac signs, Pisces struggle to thrive under strict rules or in overly-structured environments. As one of the water signs, Pisces are some of the most emotional individuals of the zodiac.
Pisces energy is imaginative and nostalgic, so it's a great energy to call on if you're trying to channel your deepest feelings into something creative. And while Pisces have a reputation for living in a bit of a fantasy world, their ethereal nature makes them one of the most spiritually in tune of all the zodiac signs. Don't mistake their softness for weakness, though.
"Pisces can be sweet as candy, [but] they can go from angel fish to piranha in a milliseconds' notice if you insult, hurt or disrespect them (whether the slight is perceived or real)," Pisces-born astrologer Laura Brown tells Bustle. "Their bite may well be the worst of all the zodiac signs!"
Pisces In Love & Romance
As one of the most romantic and sentimental signs of the zodiac, Pisces' romantic traits are plentiful. Pisces love to fantasize about finding a fairytale-style romance that will sweep them off their feet. They can't help but wear their hearts on their sleeve, so Pisces tend to fall in love quickly. While Pisces sense of idealism can set high (and perhaps unrealistic) expectations in a relationship, it also makes them incredibly compassionate partners. Pisces' ideal partner will be able to help to gently ground them while also honoring how sensitive they are. Aggressive personality types could make Pisces feel like a shrinking violet or misunderstood, which won't bode well for the relationship in the long run.
The signs most compatible with Pisces are fellow water signs Cancer and Scorpio, as well as earth signs Taurus and Capricorn. If you want to impress a Pisces, lean into your artsy side. These water babies love to put their feelings into drawings, words, and music, so bonding over a shared love of art or creative expression is ideal.
If Pisces Is Your Sun Sign
If Pisces is your sun sign, then you're a feelings-oriented dreamer who loves nothing more than to lose yourself in other worlds. You lead with your emotional side, preferring to feel your way through life rather than follow logic. Your sentiments are so powerful that sometimes it feels like you're drowning in them, which is why so many Pisces love to express themselves in symbolic ways — such as by writing poetry, making visual art, or putting together meaningful playlists. Pisces are also natural mystics, so you may feel more called to seek out spiritual experiences or feel a natural connection to the energy of the universe. Because of Pisces' deep sensitivities, you're one of the most compassionate and empathetic people around, and everyone can count on you to understand their most sentimental feelings.
Pisces may be dreamers, but in a world that's obsessed with timing, logic, and tangible things, their emotionally-focused and spiritual energy feels like a breath of fresh air. Your energy inspires others to get in touch with their feelings, unlock their creativity, and visualize how beautiful the world can be.
If Pisces Is Your Moon Sign
Your moon sign represents your more private, emotional, and vulnerable side, and also speaks to what makes you feel comforted. If your moon sign is Pisces, then how you feel often seems just as important as facts. You might find yourself getting wistfully caught up in memories often, as you tend to idealize the past. Losing yourself in the fantasy of a film, song, or daydream makes you feel nurtured and helps you to process your feelings.
If Scorpio Is Your Rising Sign
If your rising sign is Pisces, then you probably have a soft and gentle demeanor that makes you easy to be around. You come off as sympathetic and very go-with-the-flow, and you have a dreamlike quality to your personality. Pisces risings might lean toward a more whimsical style — but no matter what they wear, they always have their emotions in full view.
In astrology, every zodiac sign has a certain level of compatibility with other signs.
Pisces Compatibility: Overview
People born under Water sign Pisces — between February 19 and March 20 — are known for being creative, compassionate, intuitive, deep, emotional, adaptable, perceptive, and, above all else, original.
But Pisces can also be hard to figure out, and are often indecisive, competitive, unenthusiastic, and lethargic.
What makes someone a good match for Pisces?
Well, as wonderful and creative as these water signs can be, not everyone can handle a relationship with such dreamy individuals. The ideal partner is someone who adores and appreciates this zodiac sign’s deep emotional nature and the compassion they have for others.
Pisces are old-fashioned romantics. When they fall, they fall hard. So, a potential love interest's true essence is far more important to Pisces than that person’s appearance.
Once they have fallen in love, Pisces will care deeply about you, serving as a positive source of support to bring out your best qualities. That said, Pisces trust their instincts; if their gut tells them they can’t trust you with their heart, they usually heed their own advice and steer clear of potential heartbreak.

While it may be difficult to solve the mystery of Pisces, it’s not as challenging for them to figure out what others are all about. They are easily able to see people’s intentions, and for who or what they really are.
Pisces is ruled by the planets Neptune and Jupiter. Neptune's influence leads Pisces to often be deeply compassionate, creative and idealistic, while they may also have a tendency toward self-destructive behaviors. As the planet of faith, Jupiter provides some balance, bringing positivity and optimism.
Of course, since Pisces are all about reinvention, it takes a lot for them to be completely done with someone they love. They will offer you several chances to make things right before cutting you off permanently.
As artistic dreamers with other-worldly imaginations, they thrive with a partner who nurtures their deeply creative and spiritual nature.
Pisces Compatibility With Each Of The 12 Zodiac Signs
Think you’re a good match for the Fish of the Zodiac? See just how compatible you are.
Pisces and Aries
Love: Pisces love compatibility with Aries is weak.
Pisces are moody, overly-sensitive, and like to take their time with things, especially decisions. Fire sign Aries is impatient, impulsive, and stubborn, whereas Pisces are more considerate, both with their actions and their words.
Sex: In the bedroom, Pisces and Aries have trouble making a connection.
Pisces values pleasure and having fulfilling sex for both partners, where Aries wants less of an emotional experience. Though Aries has a grasp on Pisces’ need for physical touch and gentleness, neither truly understands the needs of one another.
Long-term relationships and marriage: A Pisces and Aries union would be full of misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and arguments, because these two signs have entirely different temperaments.
They'd probably do well in a group of athletes, co-workers, and/or artists, but a long-term relationship or marriage between them would be challenging.
Pisces and Taurus
Love: Pisces compatibility with Taurus is very strong, and this pair is highly compatible.
Taurus helps ground Pisces' flights of fancy, and Pisces brings out Taurus' creative side. Since Taurus has a great appreciation of art, they will be the push Pisces needs to fully pursue their artistic goals.
Sex: Pisces and Taurus both need to be touched — Pisces at an emotional level and Taurus on a physical level.
Intimately, Taurus tends to be somewhat possessive, but Pisces loves to be possessed, making for a high level of compatibility in the bedroom.
Long-term relationships and marriage: In a marriage, their shared love of beauty and art means spending time together doing cultural activities or staying home and having a romantic dinner.
Taurus is just as romantic as Pisces, if not more so, and can romance Pisces the way they want. Though that romance may fade over time, particularly from Taurus, Pisces knows that their love itself hasn’t faded.
Pisces and Gemini
Love: On many levels, Pisces and Gemini are a good match.
They're both extremely open-minded, flexible, and receptive to varying points of view. They love to have deep conversations or light-hearted small talk. Both signs are creative, but may need a push to start or finish their projects.
Sex: With so much in common in terms of creativity, one would think that Gemini would be a good match for Pisces sexually.
However, Pisces feels most comfortable having sex with someone they are emotionally attached to, where Gemini doesn’t care about a deep intimate connection.
Long-term relationships and marriage: Pisces live their life relying on their gut feelings and intuition, while Gemini is more rational and logical.
The best thing about a marriage between these two is their openness to exploring new perspectives. The problem is that Pisces will probably want confirmation that Gemini is their life partner, and Gemini would rather keep things uncomplicated for as long as possible.
RELATED: What Makes Pisces The Most Beautiful Zodiac Sign In The World
Pisces and Cancer
Love: These two Water signs are a great love match.
They both are sensitive, compassionate, and emotional. Pisces thrives being with someone who is as sympathetic as Cancer, and Cancer loves being able to be nurturing and caring with their partner.
Sex: Driven by romantic love, these two signs have a highly emotional connection in their sex life. Each cares about the pleasure of one another, and makes sure sex feels safe, inspired, and tender.
Long-term relationships and marriage: Pisces and Cancer are both faithful partners who need a lot of romance, affection, and passion in their relationships.
Being able to share their innermost secrets and feelings with each other gives them a sense of security and safety. It's just a big love fest between Pisces and Cancer, because when you have that kind of love, you need to tell others about it.
Pisces and Leo
Love: Pisces and Leo aren't the most compatible of the zodiac signs.
Leo has many qualities that Pisces admires, like how brave, optimistic, and loyal they are; Leo is extremely impressed with Pisces' willingness to help those in need, their uniqueness, and their artistic soul.
However, there is a lack of understanding when it comes to their beliefs and how they see the world as individuals.
Sex: The sexual compatibility for this pair is low.
Leo may be selfish about their needs in bed, while Pisces comes across to Leo as needy with high expectations. Unless they find a way to build a high level of trust, they are simply too different to find a semblance of magic.
Long-term relationships and marriage: In a long-term relationship or marriage, the main concern is Leo’s need for the spotlight.
Pisces wouldn't have a problem with Leo's dominant personality as long as Pisces was still able to think for themselves. However, Pisces can sometimes feel overwhelmed and made invisible by Leo, which doesn't make for a healthy relationship.
Pisces and Virgo
Love: Pisces compatibility with Virgo is generally good, and depends entirely on the people involved.
Both signs are intelligent, creative, and good communicators. Virgo feels things deeply but isn't as good as Pisces is with expressing their emotions.
Virgos tend to be more rigid and perfectionistic than Pisces; Pisces' lackadaisical way of doing things will work Virgo's last nerve.
Sex: Though they are sister signs, meaning their signs are exactly opposite on the zodiac wheel, there is a high level of attraction between them.
Both find sex intimate, and while Pisces is reluctant to open themselves up to a physical connection, and Virgo struggles to quell their analytic thinking, sex can be freeing once they free themselves from those restraints.
Long-term relationships and marriage: The things that bond these two is how much they want to help others and how caring they both are. But in a marriage, the way they approach things is entirely different and could lead to some communication problems.
However, if they can learn to communicate at the same level, there is a chance of success.
Pisces and Libra
Love: Pisces compatibility with Libra is weak.
They both love the arts, being creative, and laughing. Sometimes they feel social, while other times they prefer to be on their own. Air sign Libra wants balance and harmony, and those things just aren't as important to Pisces.
Sex: There is a chance for good sexual compatibility between Pisces and Libra, as both are selfless lovers and care deeply about their partner’s pleasure.
Neither are aggressive and share a need for compassion and tenderness in the bedroom. The problem arises when it comes to speed; Libra is fine with a fast experience, while Pisces wants to take their time.
Long-term relationships and marriage:Pisces and Libra make great friends, but they don't necessarily make great partners.
Libras also tend to think of Pisces as overly sensitive and wish, in some ways, that Pisces wouldn't be so sulky. Libra will get frustrated trying to get their Pisces partner to snap out of their mood, but Libra needs to relax and let Pisces be if they want their relationship to thrive.
Pisces and Scorpio
Love:Pisces and Scorpio are extremely compatible.
Of all the Zodiac pairings, Pisces and Scorpio are the most likely to fall in love at first sight, and then it just heightens from there. Neither of these signs is an open book, so the process of getting to know each other and slowly opening up is a life-long process that keeps them intrigued.
Sex: These two Water signs have an intense sexual relationship based on emotion and passion.
It’s important for them both to be understanding of the other’s preferences, particularly Pisces’ need to be satisfied and catered to, and Scorpio’s animalistic desires.
Long-term relationships and marriage: Both signs feel things deeply and are extremely passionate.
Scorpio can't stand cheaters and, luckily, Pisces are known for being faithful, meaning they can have a long-term relationship built on trust and stability. Scorpio are more dominant, but that's fine with Pisces as long as they feel protected and safe.
In addition, they both are creative and need to have as much of their partner's focus as possible.
RELATED: Pisces Symbol: Zodiac Sign Glyphs & Meanings
Pisces and Sagittarius
Love: Pisces compatibility with Sagittarius is weak.
As long as things are kept light and friendly, Pisces and Sagittarius get along, but as soon as things start to get serious, there is a problem.
Pisces are romantic, emotional, and require a lot of attention and tender loving care. It's not that Sagittarius doesn't care, they don't just want to feel tied down and don't enjoy feeling like Pisces' happiness depends on them. Pisces are a little too dependent for Sagittarius.
Sex: Sex between Pisces and Sagittarius can be fun, though there will be a lack of emotional connection between them. Their bedroom experiences come with plenty of creativity and trying new things, but the intimacy is lacking.
Long-term relationships and marriage: There is danger in Sagittarius taking advantage of Pisces' unselfish nature, causing their relationship to be unbalanced with everything being about Sagittarius. Interested in something long-term, an ideal Pisces relationship differs from Sagittarius, who likes to see how things go without making too many plans.
Pisces and Capricorn
Love: Pisces and Capricorn are surprisingly compatible.
It’s surprising because they're different in so many ways, but it's their differences that create a real connection.
Capricorn can be a stabilizing influence on Pisces and can help motivate them to achieve their dreams. Pisces helps Capricorn loosen up, not be so serious, and be their authentic, sometimes weird self.
Sex: While Capricorn is reserved and Pisces is emotional, a sexual relationship between the two is highly fulfilling.

Their differences bring them together in the bedroom, where sex is focused on spontaneity, allowing Capricorn to open themselves up emotionally and Pisces feeling grounded through physical contact.
Long-term relationships and marriage: Pisces tend to be more fluid and easy-going, whereas Capricorns tend to be more structured, buttoned-up, and practical. However, these two are alike in ways that count: they're both extremely faithful, kind, and have a shared love of art and beauty.
Pisces and Aquarius
Love: Pisces compatibility with Aquarius is so-so.
Both of these signs are amazingly creative and imaginative, and are also completely unique; on an artistic level, they might be very compatible. However, Pisces are very emotional, and Aquarius is not.
Romantic Pisces is also too old-fashioned and slow-moving for Aquarius.
Sex: With Pisces and Aquarius, sex will never be boring as long as they maintain an emotional distance, or, if Aquarius already has romantic feelings towards Pisces. Both are happy to have sex that is exciting and creative, and can have a satisfying experience.
Long-term relationships and marriage: Pisces wouldn’t understand why their Aquarius partner needs so much freedom, and why they're not content enjoying the pleasures of home.
Pisces likes adventures, but not as much as Aquarius. A marriage would suffer due to Pisces’ sensitivity and Aquarius inevitably hurting Pisces repeatedly; Pisces is forgiving, however, so they will keep letting Aquarius back in their life.
Pisces and Pisces
Love:Pisces/Pisces compatibility is like throwing a coin in the air and seeing if it lands heads up: they might get along great, or not so much.
Sometimes, two Pisces have a soul-connection and are able to give each other the emotional support they need; other times, they're just too similar and may tire of each other.
Sex: While there is medium sexual compatibility between two Pisces, they may each be a little too cautious and hold back the desire to have needs fulfilled.
But as soon as there is some kind of emotional connection, there is a high level of understanding between the two, which allows for more freedom and openness.
Long-term relationships and marriage:Pisces are extremely sensitive, so they might feel like the other is being too competitive and not giving the support and care they deserve.
If both Pisces get into a bad mood, there is no one to bring them out of it, nor is there anyone to motivate them. In a long-term relationship or marriage, two Pisces pick up on bad feelings without either expressing them for fear of being rejected.

Love compatibility of Pisces with each zodiac signs
1) Pisces – Aries
In an Aries-Pisces relationship, both parties would normally be cautious towards one another. Pisces prefers gentleness and sensitivity in romantic relationships, traits that Aries don't normally possess. Aries and Pisces may have difficulty developing a constructive scale as well. Pisces' failure to grasp Aries' direct interpersonal abilities may cause problems at times, especially when Aries decides to be overly demanding. Finally, Aries and Pisces are both empathetic, but in very different ways. As a result, communicating, reflective listening, and agreement for these two signs are difficult. Their romantic compatibility remains poor, but it still relies on how much each partner is willing to get through it.
2) Pisces – Taurus
Taurus may benefit from Pisces' emotional intensity in opening up and examining their own buried sentiments. These two were created for one other, since they each have unique perspectives and a penchant for intellectual arguments. The incapacity of a Pisces to communicate their invariably feelings, on the other hand, may cause Taureans to think that their partner is keeping something else from them. Even if a Pisces' assumption is accurate, veiled animosity may irritate a Taurus, who may respond to a Pisces' underlying feelings by being domineering.
3) Pisces – Gemini
Relationships between Pisces and Gemini are dependable, hardworking friends who know how to give a little glitz and a lot of focus to even the most mundane aspects of life. With their beauty and integrity in embracing, they create a safe haven for any friend or romantic partner they desire to welcome in. Pisces is a sign that genuinely returns the love that their lover needs. The relationship between these two signs develops over time as they remain ready to learn more about each other.
4) Pisces – Cancer
Pisces and Cancer, both Water signs, connect through emotions as soon as they are drawn to each other. This is one of the most popular love-at-first-sight zodiac sign combinations. Their largest difficulty is disguised in the erratic temperament of the Pisces sign, not because it is not real, but because they may be scared to voice it. Their primary problem is that they place a high value on various types of romance in their life. Pisces would be unsatisfied with the compassion they receive from their companion if there was no passion and sensual love, whereas Cancer would find life without a family nest depressing. A fine line must be drawn between delight and stability.
5) Pisces – Leo
Leo and Pisces appear to have been put on our planet to foster quite different kinds of love. It's not so much a problem with their composition or style. The problem arises as a result of Pluto's fall as the ruler of Pisces. If they get attracted to each other, they risk losing their moral beliefs and self-assurance. Due to a lack of understanding, they usually fall into mutual disdain. Pisces' imaginative mentality may improve the attractiveness of their connection. Other differences between them will evaporate if they concentrate on their Leo partner's noble nature.
6) Pisces – Virgo
When it comes to relationship and intimacy, Virgo prefers unique and unusual characters, which is why they are drawn to Pisces. In terms of affection and wedding, Pisces and Virgo are a fantastic match. They are never apart from one another, even if they don't show it to the outside world. Although Virgo is not a stereotypical sign, Pisces brings a touch of old-fashioned romanticism to the partnership. Because they seldom lose confidence in their marriage, this couple may be wonderful parents to their children.
7) Pisces – Libra
Libra is a sign associated with peace and tranquilly. Pisces is a flamboyant and outspoken sign. Both signs are diametrically opposed, which makes them more friendly and endearing. Although Libra and Pisces are compatible, they tend to avoid one other in their personal negative space. Pisces and Libra locals form an excellent combination since they have a clear agreement. Domestic difficulties in a Libra and Pisces marriage will diminish chemistry in the long term. Although Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac, it, like Libra, is heavily influenced by Venus.
8) Pisces – Scorpio
Natives of Pisces and Scorpio might be deeply in love, but they are magnetically drawn to one another. Once a love connection develops, it will get simpler for both signs, but they are less likely to last till marriage. Scorpios do not believe in some elements of love that Pisces consider to be the most significant. Their likes and preconceptions are very different, but they may have a wonderful love life together. They can function effectively together at the most difficult periods of each other's lives if they start simple. Their concordance is estimated to be around 80%.
9) Pisces – Sagittarius
The alignment of Venus in Pisces and Sagittarius signs is such that if they enjoy an expressive and passionate connection, both signs will offer luck to each other. Pisces is a highly open-minded individual, which will always complement Sagittarius' cognitive abilities. Their relationship's primary issue will be one of confidence and commitment. Sagittarius will be a very caring spouse, but they will find it difficult to believe their partner with eyes closed. Furthermore, this couple is quite suitable in terms of weddings and love relationships.
10) Pisces – Capricorn
Both Pisces and Capricorn are on the same plane, yet they always try to stray from the existing path in separate directions. When it comes to love and marriage, Pisces has a fascinating temperament that only a few people would be able to unleash. Capricorn is a very intelligent and perceptive sign, and they may have a very suitable marriage and relationship. For both of them, cluelessness is happiness, therefore they don't listen to other people's ideas. Both signs will be capable of connecting more on the basis of upbringing, and as a result, they will be agreeable.
11) Pisces – Aquarius
In terms of love and personal affinity, Pisces and Aquarius are a pretty good match. Both of them will have to go above and beyond to make their companion happy. Both couples will eventually be able to reconcile with one another, but they will have to be extremely concerned about each other's families. Aquarius is less adept at controlling emotions, but Pisces excels at it, thus they can effectively manage their relationship. In the early stages of a relationship, if one of the partners is Manglik, they must not marry. Aquarius and Pisces are a great match for one another, and their romance will blossom with time.
12) Pisces – Pisces
At first sight, two Pisces representatives appear to be a great match, but a closer examination reveals that they have a hard time getting near to each other. Their biggest issue is that they are all too familiar with each other. They are both aware of their partner's unstable and unpredictable temperament, thus they will quickly become entangled in a circle of honest and deceptive efforts. Because of their inner urge to motivate and assist their spouse improve, they are unlikely to fall in love. They don't need to be inspired by each other since they already are. When romantic love happens between them, they might have to walk errands for their relationship.

Pisces Core Traits
As the last sign in the zodiac wheel, Pisces (born February March 20) is known for taking on the emotional burdens of all of the zodiac signs that precede it. Ruled by the planet Neptune—named for the Roman god of the seas—Pisces' ability to feel, imagine, and create runs deep.
Having a Pisces friend or partner is kind of like having an on-call therapist: a Pisces will listen tirelessly to your problems as a gentle observer, never jumping to judge or offer unsolicited advice. But a Pisces can sometimes lose focus on the conversation, not because they don't care, but because they're daydreaming! Pisces is often dreaming about possibilities and realities beyond the present moment.
Because Pisces are so incredibly sensitive, they can sometimes detach from the here-and-now as a way to cope with the feelings they take on. When they really feel the need to create distance between their compassionate heart and some of the grittier aspects of life, Pisces may turn to various forms of escapism that aren't so healthy. To be the best version of themselves, a Pisces needs to be able to stay anchored to solid ground, even as they let themselves imagine and dream.
There's so much more to learn about this gentle, caring sign. Be sure to check out our complete guide for in-depth information about Pisces!
What Makes a Good Match for Pisces?
There are five important character traits that Pisces compatible signs are likely to exhibit—check them out below.
Trait 1: Groundedness
A Pisces' best match should be able to stay grounded in reality. Imaginative Pisces can tend to have their head in the clouds, dreaming about how things could be instead of dealing with the realities of daily life. A partner who can bring Pisces back down to earth—and help them think through concrete ways to deal with life's challenges that don't involve escapism—will help bring balance to this star sign's reality.
Practical signs also help Pisces make the most of their creativeness, too. While Pisces are geared toward making and imagining new things, they often struggle with the practicalities of bringing those visions to life. A grounded friend or partner can help them execute their dreams and share them with the world.
Trait 2: Patience
A Pisces never means to be difficult, but their insecurities and anxieties about doing the wrong thing can sometimes be exhausting. That's why a good partner for Pisces will need to possess an endless wellspring of patience. They'll have to be able to comfort their friend when they're feeling unsure, and their encouragement will push Pisces to chase their dreams.
Having patient people in their lives won't stop a Pisces from having these dark moments, but it does mean they'll recover from them faster. When Pisces is feeling better, they'll be endlessly grateful to their partner for being patient—and their partner can count on Pisces to show them the same patience as well.
Trait 3: Spirituality
Pisces' compatible signs will likely be highly spiritual. As one of the most spiritual signs of the zodiac, Pisces feel a strong connection to other signs who cultivate spiritual practices, live out a spiritual purpose, and like to discuss their inner world.
Pisces also sees someone with a strong spiritual life as empathetic and compassionate—two other traits that Pisces appreciates in a partner. Because a Pisces is so gentle and sensitive, having a kind person on their side is a must.
Trait 4: Objectivity
When life spins out of control, it can be hard for Pisces to see things as they really are. Pisces might exaggerate the negative aspects of a situation or obsess over possible (or impossible!) outcomes. That's why a Pisces' best match will need to have the gift of objectivity. Pisces' are attracted to people who can take a step back and see a situation for what it really is.
A Pisces needs a cool-headed partner to gently talk them down from emotional meltdowns or bouts of sadness when they can't see reason on their own. When things are going well for a Pisces, they'll also need a friend or partner whose objectivity can help them identify concrete actions to take in order to put their creative plans into action.
Trait 5: Straightforwardness
A Pisces' acute sensitivity to the feelings of others can sometimes lead them to suppress their own feelings. They may be afraid of hurting others' feelings or causing offense, so they tend to keep their true feelings to themselves to avoid causing harm to themselves and others. Unfortunately, this isn't good for a Pisces, either. This sign is happiest when they can be vulnerable!
With a straightforward partner, Pisces may feel safe to be straightforward as well. In a relationship, Pisces' hesitation to be honest about what they're thinking and feeling can send mixed signals to their significant other, which can lead to conflict. That's why a Pisces' most compatible sign needs to be kind but direct. That way they can be honest with a Pisces about how their emotional dishonesty affects the relationship, and encourage a Pisces to speak their truth, even if they're a little scared.
Pisces are patient and gentle people, which means there are some signs that might be too brash and bold for them. Here are qualities that Pisces should be wary of in a partner or friend.
What Makes a Bad Match for Pisces?
The following five traits that just aren't compatible with this star sign. If you have one or more of these traits, you might be a poor match for a Pisces!
Trait 1: Passive Aggressiveness
Pisces' usual approach to conflict is to communicate passive-aggressively, so if their partner defaults to the same conflict resolution style when things get heated, nothing will ever be resolved. In fact, a pair of passive-aggressive partners can inflict more heartache in the long run.
A partner who can resist the urge to respond to Pisces' cryptic barbs with underhanded comments can bring out a better side of Pisces. Not only will it help conflict resolve more quickly, it will also encourage Pisces to maintain healthy approaches to resolving conflict in the relationship.
Trait 2: Dominance
Tenderhearted Pisces can struggle to be assertive. When paired with a domineering partner, Pisces tends to follow their lead wherever they may go—even if it's to a place that isn't in Pisces best interest. In the worst case scenarios, this type of lopsided relationship can leave Pisces feeling like they don't have any power to make decisions for themselves.
Pisces' submissiveness comes from a genuine place of wanting to put others' needs first and make their loved ones happy. But this can backfire when Pisces' friends and family don't know when to back down. Pisces need friends and partners who pursue compromise in a relationship.
Trait 3: Insensitivity
Whether it's directed toward Pisces or others, insensitivity is a big turn off for Pisces. This star sign can't stand to see others hurting, and Pisces will struggle to understand the motives of a partner who acts insensitively.
Of course, some personality traits may manifest as insensitivity even when they aren't intended that way—like assertiveness or brutal honesty, for instance. If you're the type of person who just "tells it like it is" regardless of the consequences, then you're probably not a good fit for a Pisces.
Trait 4: Perfectionism
Pisces' most compatible signs aren't likely to be perfectionists. Pisces are creative, which often means that they experience a few false starts before they get to where they want to go. But Pisces also tend to be pretty hard on themselves, so a perfectionist partner will likely only add fuel to Pisces' fires of self-criticism.
When Pisces senses perfectionism in a friend or partner, this star sign may retreat because they're afraid of being judged. Being with someone who can laugh at small mistakes and listen without judging will make Pisces feel like they don't have to present a facade of perfection in the relationship. This will also make a Pisces feel like they can be vulnerable, too!
Trait 5: Emotional Withdrawal
When facing interpersonal conflict, some star signs will emotionally withdraw to get what they want. Pisces is one of those signs, which means they don't do well with partners who also tend to pull away.
Ultimately, star signs who close off emotionally during disagreements probably just do so as a form of self-protection, but when two are emotionally withdrawn, it's the relationship itself that will suffer. With Pisces, a partner who can gently draw everything out into the open for purposeful processing will help Pisces feel safe to share.
Who Are Pisces Compatible With? Each Star Sign Ranked From Least to Most Compatible
Pisces compatibility with the other signs of the zodiac depends on how each star sign approaches communication, shared interests, and values. The table below gives you the full rundown of how each star sign fits with Pisces based on their compatibility in love, friendship, and communication.
|Sign Pairing||Overall Compatibility||Love||Friendship||Communication|
Next, we'll describe Pisces compatible signs from least, to mid, to most compatible.
If a Pisces is looking for a deep and fulfilling relationship, they should definitely keep these zodiac signs in mind.
High Pisces Compatibility: Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn
So who is Pisces most compatible with, exactly? The star signs that make a Pisces' best match are Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Capricorn.
Pisces and Taurus
Taurus and Pisces are well-suited for domestic bliss, sharing sensuality, creativity, and an enthusiasm for intellectual discussions. They'll be able to while away the hours at home, creating, decorating, and even hosting parties for those they love.
Taureans also provide Pisces the grounding they so desperately need. A Taurus doesn't mind being practical, which can help a Pisces live their best life. Additionally, a Pisces' gentle nature can help a Taurus feel comfortable breaking out of their routine to enjoy new things. While they don't share every trait, this pair balances each other in all the right ways.
Pisces and Cancer
Cancer and Pisces are known nurturers, and they'll find the attentiveness and compassion they both crave in one another. As highly empathic signs, though, these two can take on each other's emotional burdenswhich is a good thing! Oftentimes Pisces can feel like they're carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders, but Cancers are willing and able to lighten their emotional load.
In fact, both Pisces and Cancer shine when they're making meaningful connections with others. A Pisces-Cancer couple can spend a lifetime extending their well-known hospitality to friends and family and bonding over the thrill of making others feel right at home. Don't be surprised when this couple shows up with a hot meal when you're going through a hard time, or lets you stay with them for weeks while you're looking for a new place to live. The shared values of kindness and generosity make this pairing one that's destined to be successful.
Pisces and Scorpio
Scorpio and Pisces are both highly spiritual. These two will connect deeply through their dedication to nurturing a rich inner life and living out well-honed grounding principles. Pisces and Scorpio will recognize each other's sensitive side and by willing to create space for both partners to express their emotions safely.
The other thing these signs have in common? Valuing emotional honesty. Both Scorpios and Pisces want their partners to be open and honest with them. Having faith that the other partner will love them unconditionally and choosing to be honest about their feelings will keep a Pisces-Scorpio couple together for life.
Pisces and Capricorn
Capricorn and Pisces have very different habits and seem like total opposites, but their common interests can bring them together in a strong, dutiful relationship. While a Cap is a conformist and a Pisces a bit of a rebellious dreamer, these two will connect over their desire to see and experience new cultures, places, and ideas. They want to live big, and because of that, they can be great fits for one another!
Their opposite skill sets can make these star signs feel like missing pieces in each other's puzzles. A Capricorn will work tirelessly to help a Pisces sketch out the details of their creative vision, and a Pisces will bring much-needed spontaneity and creative energy to a Capricorn's structured reality. These two are well-suited to grow and learn together in a long term relationship.
If a Pisces is in a relationship with these signs, they should be prepared to communicate and compromise in order to make things work!
Medium Pisces Compatibility: Pisces, Leo, Virgo, Libra
There are four Pisces-compatible signs that exhibit both traits that click with a Pisces, and other traits that a Pisces should avoid. These signs are Pisces, Leo, Virgo, and Libra.
Pisces and Pisces
Two Pisces in a relationship will delight in doting on each other. As the healers of the zodiac, a pair of Pisces will find wonderful helpers in each other. In fact, they may find themselves arguing over who gets to care for the other (like who gets the first backrub, who does the extra chores this week, or who picks up dinner on the way home from work).
Where this pairing can get tricky is in the realm of communication. Pisces struggle to be straightforward about what they're feeling in a relationship—especially when they're dissatisfied. This dynamic can result in two resentful people who are feeling big feelings but not saying much about them. Miscommunication and hurt feelings will occur unless both Pisces can step up and be honest about their emotions—which will lead to stronger intimacy.
Pisces and Leo
A Leo and a Pisces can make a good pairing since they complement each other well. A Leo's ability to take charge can compensate for Pisces' wishy-washiness, and a Pisces' inventiveness can inspire a Leo's own creative process. In this coupling, a Leo isn't afraid to take the leadwhich can take a lot of pressure off of a Pisces, who doesn't mind going with the flow.
But this pair should beware of each other's sensitive side: both Leo and Pisces tend to lash out when they feel insecure, and may take hurtful cheap shots at each other to avoid true vulnerability. For this match to work, Leos must Picses take the reins every now and then, and Pisces must work through their insecurities in healthy ways.
Pisces and Virgo
Pisces and Virgos connect over their desire to help and nurture others. Like two sides of the same coin, Virgo identifies the issues that need healing, while Pisces extends empathy and offers a listening ear. Together, this pair does an excellent job at making the people around them feel loved.
But both Virgo and Pisces fear being judged, which can lead both partners to lock away their thoughts and feelings. This is especially true if Virgo's perfectionism becomes too pronounced—Pisces may hide their mistakes and lash out at Virgo passive aggressively. If these two can communicate with love and understanding, they can form a solid bond.
Pisces and Libra
Dreamers Libra and Pisces have the makings for a storybook romance. These two love to spend their time reveling in life's beauties and mysteries. Pisces and Libra will bond over music, art, food, and most of all, the beauty they see in each other. If you're looking for a match out of a romance novel, this is it!
However, these star signs must be careful not to float too high into the clouds of fantasyland. When reality strikes, things can start to unravel for a Pisces-Libra match. Both tend to shut down in the face of chaos and can spin each other into an obsessive turmoil. Keeping one foot planted on solid ground is the key to this magical pairing working out for the long haul.
While Pisces are pretty mellow, that doesn't mean they get along with everyone. Here are the signs that Pisces are most likely to clash with.
Low Pisces Compatibility: Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, Aquarius
Four star signs are known for having low Pisces compatibility. These signs are Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
Pisces and Aries
While Pisces and Aries can balance out some of each others' strengths and weaknesses, these two signs have drastically different dispositions that may cause conflict. Aries' brashness may intimidate a soft spoken Pisces, which will deter Pisces from being open about their needs and desires. On the other hand, a Pisces' unpredictable emotions may be frustrating to an Aries, who will struggle to follow a Pisces' mercurial moods.
Ultimately, these star signs both struggle to open up, communicate clearly, and build trust, leading to a rocky relationship.
Pisces and Gemini
Geminis tend to be emotionally distant, which can make Pisces feel insecure. Pisces want emotional vulnerability from their partners, so it's tough for them if they feel like they can't connect!
Additionally, both Pisces and Geminis are susceptible to sudden mood swings that can make it hard for their relationship to feel secure. This can make both partners feel like they're being duped, causing resentment and dissatisfaction to set in. The best thing these two can do is be relentlessly honest and own up to wrongdoings in the relationship if they want it to work out.
Pisces and Sagittarius
Sagittarius and Pisces are practically polar opposites. Where a Pisces is sensitive and tenderhearted, a Sagittarius is thick-skinned and not particularly concerned with how others feel. When conflict arises, a Sag may pile on more brutal honesty than a Pisces can handle, then roll their eyes when a Pisces' feelings are (understandably) hurt.
On the other hand, getting Sagittarians to talk about their feelings is like pulling teeth—a process that considerate Pisces will shy away from, no matter how much they want to connect with Sag on a deeper emotional level.
For this pairing to have a chance, both signs must be willing to resist some of their fundamental behaviors in order to make the other feel understood and loved.
Pisces and Aquarius
Pisces and Aquarians share a passion for helping others. If a Pisces-Aquarius partnership lacks a shared vision for social action, this pair struggles to make it work. A Pisces' emotional complexity may take more effort to decode than an Aquarius is willing to put forth, and Aquarius's stoicism can make a Pisces feel isolated.
Unfortunately, the issues don't stop there. An Aquarius' tendency to avoid intimacy will make a Pisces wall themselves off. That emotional distance can create a deep fissure in an Aquarius-Pisces relationship that leaves both parties unhappy. In the end, Aquarians may not make the best match for Pisces.
The 3 Big Takeaways for Pisces Compatibility
You might be wondering what to do with all of this information about Pisces' most compatible signs. We'll sum it all up by offering three takeaways for Pisces here.
#1: You Are More Than Your Sign
Remember that zodiac signs are a fun way to do some self-analysis—they don't dictate who you are or how others view you! While you may embody some Pisces traits, you probably don't identify with them all. That's normal: as people, we're shaped by our experiences. So don't let your zodiac sign stand between you and your relationships!
#2: Find Your Inspiration
Having said that, many Pisces identify as dreamers who are inspired by those around them. Use that to your advantage when you're looking for friends or partners! Everyone has something inspirational about them, whether that's a skill they've developed or a challenge they've overcome.
Our advice? Looking for inspirational traits another person is a great way for you to connect with others--and build healthy relationships, too.
#3: Speak Up About Your Needs
You can make a relationship work with any star sign—you both just have to be willing to compromise, empathize, and be kind in all circumstances. But in many instances, it's hard for another person to guess what you need in a relationship. Make sure you articulate what makes you happy and what doesn't. When you do, you'll find that others will work hard to make you feel loved and cared for!

PISCES + ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
Aries is the zodiac's first sign, Pisces its last. You're the Alpha and the Omega, the dawn and the sunset. You're as far apart and as close together as two signs can get. Although your differences are vast, you also have a broad expanse of material from which to fashion your relationship. Your polar positions can actually make you a great match. Aries loves to be adored and spoiled, and generous Pisces will give everything in the name of love. In Pisces' worshipful gaze, Aries feels brilliant and boundless, and his insecurities melt away. This is important for the sensitive Ram, whose "wounded soldier" archetype is healed by the Pisces nurse. In this relationship, Aries is free to follow his natural hunting instincts; Pisces prepares a banquet from his conquests. The danger: You both have vivid imaginations, but with two dreamers at the helm of this romance, the ship can veer off course. Aries is a take-charge leader, but needs a strong second mate. Bravado and confidence don't come easy to insecure Pisces, who falls into feigned helplessness under duress. Moody spells are common for your signs, and digging yourselves out of emotional ditches can be a challenge. You'll need a council of advisors to help you manage aspects of daily life—accountants, lawyers, coaches, therapists. Aries can be naturally aggressive, where Pisces is passive or passive-aggressive. You'll need to adapt your communication styles in order to be heard.
PISCES + TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) ♥♥♥♥
This is a lovely match of two pleasure-driven sensualists. Taurus is ruled by beauty planet Venus, and Pisces is governed by enchanting Neptune. You both love gourmet food, wine and culture, and you make a creative couple with sophisticated flair. You never run out of things to discuss, whether it's the latest New Yorker piece, art theory, or the obscure band both of you love. In the bedroom, the lusty Bull is happy to enact any fantasy that Pisces' boundless imagination conjures—and there will be many. Domestic bliss is assured, and your fussy decorating styles will match perfectly, much to your snobbish delight. For the long term, you'll need to regulate your energy with each other, or you can lapse into a master-and-servant dynamic. Passive-aggressive Pisces must become more assertive, and forceful Taurus should relax his domineering ways. At times, Pisces' secretive spells can cause fissures in the foundation, arousing suspicion in possessive Taurus. Even if what Pisces is hiding is inconsequential, the act itself destabilizes the relationship. Emotional manipulation infuriates the Bull, who prefers everything above board, and hates to be blindsided. However, Pisces can't always verbalize his complex feelings as quickly as Taurus demands. Too much forcefulness can intimidate the gentle Fish, sending him swimming into unreachable depths.
PISCES + GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
You're both dual signs: Gemini is the Twins, and Pisces is symbolized by two Fish swimming in opposite directions. You're pop psychology's poster children for commitment-phobia. Are you in or are you out? It depends on the day, the mood, the cosmic alignment. Obviously, this is no way to run a relationship—but wait. Here's a golden chance to peer into love's looking glass and see your own shadowy Id mirrored back. Yes, your psyches and hang-ups are as bizarre as Alice's rabbit-hole tumble into Wonderland. Pisces, you really can be as needy, emotionally exhausting and manipulative as Gemini says. Gemini, you are indeed capable of being a double-talking, evasive ice-tyrant with a heart like polished marble. And…so what? If you can actually own your dark sides—which we all have—you're also capable of spreading tremendous light. You must negotiate your differences with transparent honesty, though. Pisces is an emotional Water sign; Gemini is an intellectual Air sign. Unless you balance the proportions, Gemini drowns in Pisces' undertow and the zodiac's Mermaid suffocates from breathing too much oxygen. Gemini must strive to connect emotionally, and Pisces will need to lighten up. Perennial dissatisfaction is also a killer. Don't say you want something, then refuse to be happy when your partner provides it. Gratitude is an intimate act: it requires you to acknowledge that your partner can reach you, a vulnerable place. Two words to save your relationship: "Thank you" and "You're right."
PISCES + CANCER (June 21 - July 22) ♥♥♥♥
You're a pair of softies underneath it all, even if the world sees a hard Crab shell or a tough, scaly Fish. Alone with each other, your compatible Water signs are as tender as can be. You're both compassionate and nurturing, soothing each other with sustenance and sensitivity. There's nothing a stick of butter, cookies made from scratch, or a nice after-dinner cordial by the fire can't solve. Romantic and sensual, you love to pipe classical music through the sound system, light the candelabras and whip up a gourmet feast side-by-side. Hours of kissing and foreplay will follow. Though your relationship is a refuge, it can also become a fishbowl that limits your growth. You absorb each other's fluctuating moods like a sponge, so get out of the aquarium-for-two. With your refined sensibilities, you're excellent patrons of the arts, so head to museums, gallery openings, concerts, and dance performances. Fling open your doors for dinner parties that toast an artistic friend, an esteemed poet, or a relative's good news. This satisfies your nurturing instincts, and invites new energy into your space. You must both learn when to let go of grudges, since you can be passive-aggressive and play the victim when your feelings are hurt. Slammed doors, sulking and brooding must stop. Don't excuse bad behavior with psychobabble, either (e.g., "When you said that, it reminded me of how my mother couldn't love"). Grow up, will you? If you've been cruel, simply say "I'm sorry" and offer a long hug. The power of touch can heal anything between you, too.
PISCES + LEO (July 23 - August 22)
Your signs are very different, but you can eventually gel into a lasting relationship. Pisces is a flowy, sensitive Water sign who needs a decisive mate. Confident Leo, a Fire sign, is a natural leader, eager to rule the relationship. Because Pisces takes longer to articulate his needs, Leo could mistakenly assume he's got the upper hand, and that Pisces is content to follow. Not so fast. In your own ways, you both wear your hearts on your sleeve, but you need to tune into each other's sensitive spots. You're incredibly romantic, and the tender passion between you is great in the beginning. However, you may hit a dry spell when it's time to get truly intimate.
Secretive Pisces feels so vulnerable when his soul is exposed, and may lash out at Leo in an unconscious reaction to the Lion's strength—for example, criticizing Leo's appearance, weight or intelligence. These cruel barbs are actually just a projection of Pisces' own self-doubt, but they plunge a thorn in the Lion's paw no less. Pisces must work through the tedious knots of his insecurities, which lay deep in his psyche. Leo is a powerhouse who can run the show with his eyes closed, but he'll do best to step aside and give the Fish his chance to shine. Shy Pisces is a true creative force, but his brilliant imagination and keen intuition can be eclipsed by showy Leo. Work through this. Luxury is a weakness for your signs, and you love to indulge. You may need to take courses on money management together, or team up to make a fortune so you never have to worry about it.
PISCES + VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) ♥♥♥♥
Virgo and Pisces are two of the most powerful healers in the zodiac. Virgo is an Earth sign, clinical and data-driven, always there with a practical answer and a helping hand. Water-sign Pisces has emotional compassion, the ability to empathize and absorb other people's pain. You're opposite signs: Virgo is the doctor; Pisces is the nurse. You can teach each other a lot, doing much good on the planet along the way. Virgo is the zodiac's giver, performing acts of selfless service (Mother Theresa is a Virgo). However, it's hard for Virgo to receive, since he views "neediness" as a weakness in himself. Enter Pisces, ruler of the zodiac's receptive twelfth house. The Fish knows how to surrender boundaries and allow people's energy to flow in. Pisces teaches Virgo that accepting love is a generous and selfless act. It opens the door for others to be their greatest selves, to discover their power through contributing.
At times, Pisces' emotional nature can overwhelm Virgo, leaving him ungrounded. You both need doses of solitude to reconnect with your souls. Writing, playing music (especially classical compositions or Gregorian chants), painting and creativity is healing to you both. This relationship also brings out your spiritual sides. Meditation, yoga and metaphysical study can open up great psychic channels. These practices also prevent unhealthy addictions, which your easily-stressed signs may adopt as a means of self-medicating. Watch out for secretive tendencies, which you both have as a result of perfectionism and insecurity. Communicate openly, or air your "shameful" skeletons to a confidante—otherwise, you'll beat yourselves up unnecessarily, causing distance in the relationship.
PISCES + LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
Drifting into a dappled dreamscape of your own imagination, your poetic souls entwine against astrological odds. Libra is an Air sign and Pisces is a Water sign; together you can stir a gentle sea breeze or drown in your own sexual tsunami. But oh, the romance is worth it. Like any good bodice-ripper, there's passion, intrigue and mystique to spice up this storyline. You can get lost for days in a decadent meal, a gorgeous sonata, each other's luminous eyes. While the cynics gag, they secretly envy your enchanted, oxytocin-addled bliss. Living in a fantasy is fun for your signs, and gratification eclipses all boundaries and structures. Another Sancerre, an hour less sleep—it can all be justified in the name of pleasure. It's when reality steps in that things get hairy. After waking past noon in your umpteenth limb-and-linen tangle, you remember that pesky paycheck, your stuffed Inbox, the unopened mail. Oops. Hung over and wholly unequipped to deal with the overwhelm, you lash out at each other. Without outside contact and obligations to anchor you, you can both descend into bouts of moodiness, indulgence and even depression. Balance—the Libra catchphrase—must be practiced early on.
PISCES + SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) ♥♥♥♥
You're both "spiritual beings having a human experience," Finding an equally sensitive, divinely connected soulmate feels like coming home. Scorpio and Pisces are compatible artistes who love music, drama and romance. Like a lighthouse for two ships adrift on the emotional high seas, your relationship is an anchor and a haven. However, it's not immune to the turbulence caused by your secretive, Water sign natures. Emotional withdrawal is a self-protective act you've both honed over the years, but this tactic backfires when used against each other. The trick is learning to catch a bad mood when it starts, then processing the feelings instead of lashing out. Once the righteous anger and wounded egos kick in, you're like two runaway trains waging a war of domination and submission. Scorpio control tussles with Pisces guilt, Scorpio withholding wrestles Pisces evasion, and so on. Yet, you both want the same thing: a partner who inspires absolute, unshakeable trust with a money-back guarantee. What you need to learn is how to give it before you get it. To adapt the saying, be the change you want to see in your partner. It will keep you together for lifetimes.
PISCES + SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
What happens when the most sensitive, tender-hearted sign (Pisces) links up with the most insensitive, tactless sign (Sagittarius)? Disaster, unless you handle each other with extreme care. Romantic Pisces is a Water sign who craves deep emotional bonding, while independent Sag is a Fire sign who feels smothered by too much of the touchy-feelies. You'll need to balance your most distinctive traits and parcel them out in measured doses. Your communication styles don't work together naturally either. Sagittarius is honest to a fault, dishing the unvarnished truth and heavy-handed advice (usually unsolicited), then whistling while Pisces weeps. Indirect Pisces would rather flee to Katmandu than face conflict, but standing up to Sagittarius requires it. Pisces is prone to passive-aggressive tactics; yet, subtle cues and hints will sail right over Sag's head, while the Archer's arrow of truth spears the Fish's heart. What do you have in common? You're both skittish about commitment—namely, the terrifying idea of being "trapped." Since Pisces rules fantasy and Sagittarius rules adventure, you can neatly escape the daily drudge together—at least until reality comes crashing down. Still, life is always tinged with magic when you're together, and the bedroom remains an enchanting space of divine communion for you.
PISCES + CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
On the surface, you might seem like an odd match—imagine a Harvard MBA in Armani dating a paint-splattered artist in Oshkosh. Yet, your signs pair well, even if you don't want to admit it. With classic good looks and a dutiful nature, Capricorn fits neatly into the system. Pisces is a flowy Fish who excels at playing the the artsy rebel, the indie darling, the adorable mess. By comparison, Capricorn seems structured and regimented—but appearances deceive. While Pisces may delight in coloring outside the neat lines Capricorn draws, the real surprise is that Capricorn is the bigger freak behind closed doors. Capricorn has a dominant, even cruel streak that can play out in the bedroom (not that submissive Pisces doth protest). Leather, whips and kinky fun—it's all fair game. You both love to find lesser-known wine, music, and art, a pride yourself on having cultivated tastes. Together, you can traverse the tony uptown spaces to the lowbrow dives, discovering cultural jewels wherever you go. Your diverse strengths could make you great business partners, too. Open a gallery, with Pisces as curator and Capricorn as financial backer.
PISCES + AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
Old and new come together in an interesting combination. Pisces is an ancient velvet boudoir with dripping candles and fainting couches; Aquarius is a modern, steel-and-glass construction heated by solar panel. Yet, this strange match can work if it's built around a shared cause or passion. You're both die-hard humanitarians, and if you share a common vision, you'll stay together for life. Pisces is a Water sign, more emotional and complex in nature than Aquarius. Contrary to myth, Aquarius is an Air sign (not Water), though it's symbolized by the water-bearer holding an urn. The lighter Aquarian touch lifts Pisces out of the murky, depressive swamp, while enchanting Pisces adds tassels and trim to Aquarius' cold, clinical reality. You both morbidly fear being trapped in a boring, conventional commitment. Since you can never really figure each other out, the attraction stays strong. A little mystery will keep you fascinated, though too much (ahem, Pisces) will make the relationship way too much work for Aquarius.
PISCES + PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
You love each other; you love each other not. Pisces is denoted by two fish swimming in opposite directions—one toward security, the other to freedom. Such tender bait is a fellow Fish who's equal parts commitment-phobe and serial monogamist! As partners in paradox, you'll play nursemaid, Shiatsu-ist, and sous chef to one another, doting until it hurts. Then, of course, comes the Great Escape—intimacy overload strikes, but you feel too "guilty" to ask for a night off from gazing into each other's eyes as some angsty singer-songwriter pipes through the iPod. Instead, you fly into a passive-aggressive panic, turning on each other vis a vis a good self-flogging. "It's not you, it's me," you call over your shoulder as the door shuts behind you (read: "I'm too gutless to demand better foreplay"). "I'm such an awful person—you deserve better," Pisces laments (translation: "You suck"). The real problem isn't your chemistry, it's that you're both so damn indirect. Communication is the cornerstone of a lasting relationship, and if you keep walking on eggshells, you'll end up resentful, depressed (anger turned inward) or eventually exploding with rage. With the right prescriptions, a good therapist and maybe a couples' karate class (think: the socially-sanctioned chop to his midsection that you've been dying to deliver), you can swim together like happy little minnows forever.

Comparing sun signs can give a good general idea of compatibility. However, this is just a quick and easy way to compare, and it's going to have lots of exceptions on this broad level.
That's because people are more than just their sun sign. There are other planets which also affect someone's personality. This creates billions of permutations making each Pisces slightly different. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet positions from their date of birth and then compare them to your own. This unlocks the real power of astrology and gives much more useful and specific information, such as how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the astrology compatibility readings page.
Pisces compatibility forums
Here you can share experiences and opinions on dating, marriage and affairs, whether you're a Pisces or have experience with one.
You'll find that some of these forums are generally positive in tone, and some are generally negative. That doesn't guarantee that will be your experience, however you are very likely to recognize some common patterns which can be fascinating.
Some relationship combinations are much more common than others. Some sun signs are also much more chatty than others. Some are more likely to compliment (or complain!) about a partner. Each forum therefore tends to have a fairly consistent trend to the comments.
Please keep in mind though that people are much more than just their sun sign. Beyond a point Pisces compatibility varies due to the individuals other planet positions when they were born. You need a real astrology reading to understand a real relationship.
